© 2016 IEEE. Location estimation of a wireless capsule endoscope at 400 MHz MICS band is implemented here using both RSSI and TOA-based techniques and their performance investigated. To improve the RSSI-based location estimation, a maximum likelihood (ML) estimation method is employed. For the TOA-based localization, FDTD coupled with continuous wavelet transform (CWT) is used to estimate the time of arrival and localization is performed using multilateration. The performances of the proposed localization algorithms are evaluated using a computational heterogeneous biological tissue phantom in the 402MHz-405MHz MICS band. Our investigations reveal that the accuracy obtained by TOA based method is superior to RSSI based estimates. It has been observed that the ML method substantially improves the accuracy of the RSSI-based location estimation.
